What is liposuction?

Diet and exercise alone may not be enough to achieve the body shape you desire. Liposuction is a gentle procedure used to remove stubborn body fat quickly and effectively from areas such as the abdomen, thighs, hips, and more. It is an effective solution for eliminating fat, tightening skin, and shaping your body the way that you want it!

What is liposculpture?

Liposuction does not reduce fat over your entire body. It is a localized procedure, targeting specific pockets of fat. At Dr. W. Dermatology, we can provide comprehensive treatment, addressing various problem areas for a three dimensional body shape transformation. This is known as liposculpture.

Liposuction procedure

Liposuction Houston - Liposuction
This is the number one cosmetic procedure performed in America, and with good reason. It is very safe and comfortable with minimal downtime – and fabulous results! Liposuction is a tried-and-true body shaping technique, which has been in use for three decades. The safety and predictability of the procedure has continually improved over this time.

We use tumescent local anesthesia, which has been proven as the safest method. The areas to be treated are marked on the skin, and infiltrated with anesthetic. After 20 to 30 minutes, the fat becomes firm and the area is completely numb. The fat is removed from your body using tiny microcannulas inserted through very small incisions. This allows for the smoothest result, with no pain. Results are seen within a couple of weeks.

When is liposuction appropriate?

No cosmetic procedure should be considered an alternative to healthy eating and exercise. The ideal candidate for liposuction is a healthy individual with areas of stubborn fat one inch thick or more.

Genetics, age, and many other factors combine to make our bodies refuse to shed fat in certain areas. Some people have resorted to unhealthy “crash diets” and other extreme weight loss techniques, yet fat pockets remain stubbornly in place. A simple, gentle liposuction procedure can eliminate those pooches and bulges that you’ve fought with for years.
